Applications due Jan. 11 for Executive Leadership Program

Posted on by sbhatt

The deadline for applying to the AAJA Executive Leadership Program is coming up!

The AAJA Executive Leadership Program (ELP) looks at how Asian American and Pacific Islander values relate to high-level decision-making processes and leadership development. The two-session program explores the responsibilities and challenges in the newsroom. Each participant will develop individual career paths to leadership positions. There are 381 graduates of the Executive Leadership Program since the program began in 1995.

This year’s ELP introductory session will take place March 10-14, 2010 in New York City. The Newspaper Association of America Foundation offers a minority fellowship to send a newspaper journalist to attend ELP.

The cost for tuition and most meals is $1,200. See details here. Both the chapter and National can provide stipend support to those selected for the program. (This is why we raise money and you need to buy a ticket to our Lunar New Year Banquet & Silent Auction.)

We have several ELP grads right here in the Seattle chapter who can tell you about their experiences in the program: Marian Liu, Sanjay Bhatt, Athima Chansanchai and Sharon Chan, to name a few.
